Once a year John selects an ultra endurance event in order to raise money for Bowel Cancer West – find out all you need to know here.

This charity remains very important to him, due to the close family members and friends who have been affected by this disease.

There are so many amazing charities out there doing great work, however Bowel Cancer West is close to his heart, and we would be grateful for any donations made to his Just Giving Page – please click on the link below.

He has decided to embark on a Backyard Ultra event in Portland, Dorset, starting on May the 28th.

For those who don’t know anything about a Backyard Ultra, it entails a loop of 4.2 miles, which sounds easy right? But the aim of a Backyard event is to run until you can’t run anymore, 1 loop every hour, on the hour, until you drop!

24 loops being John’s ultimate goal. Last year he managed 20, an amazing achievement and not far off from last year’s winner who managed a staggering 29 loops.
